Vostok 6 model, based on the old Revell 1/24 kit with the hexagonal ablative panels on the crew capsule made from paper and the visible gear on the equipment model from wire and plastic stock. Aft radiators made from sheet styrene and antennae from wire and paper clips.

Valentina Tereshkova's patch on base is a custom decal printed on my laser printer.

Space shuttle Columbia in STS-1 launch configuration using the old Monogram 1/72 shuttle stack kit with RealSpaceModels replacement engine bells and decals, plus some custom printed decals. Flight deck windows rebuilt to match flight vehicle. Yes, the off-white for the FRSI surface panels got too dark.

Bonus: base signed by STS-1 Pilot Robert Crippen

Apollo 17's command module America in lunar orbit configuration. 1/72 scale using the Dragon Apollo 17 CSM and stand.

First attempt at the Mylar tape pattern in 1/72 scale. I applied Bare Metal Foil in sections based on the David Weeks drawings and gently scribed the lines with a hobby knife. I drilled out a round dimple for the center of the CM hatch window and used and engraver to add the optics penetrations. I kitbashed the EVA light from spare parts.

1/72 scale Apollo 16 LM "Orion". Built using the Dragon J-mission kit with modifications to add the LRV bay and deployment gear, peeled back kapton foils around MESA and quad III bays, corrected the RCS nozzle direction errors, added docking drogue to upper hatch, corrected docking target, simulated the blistering of the white Sicon paint applied to the ascent stage and extended the descent engine bell.
